Sofia Richie is Complex magazine’s latest cover girl.
In the mag, the 18-year-old daughter of Lionel Richie reveals that people sometimes make racially-insensitive comments in front of her not realizing she’s Black.
“I’m very light, so some people don’t really know that I’m black,” she told Complex. “I’ve been in situations where people will say something kind of racist, and I’ll step in and they’ll be like, ‘Oh, well, you’re light.’”
Sofia may be light, but that’s no excuse.
“That still doesn’t cut it, buddy,” Sofia says.. “It’s 2016 — you better get your s–t together before you get slapped out here.”
She’s absolutely right.
